debate of the 2012 election. let's get to courtney reagan. she's breaking down the stocks today that moved or could have been moved in one direction or another as a result of that. over to you. >> thank you, maria. mitt romney did need to revis revitalize his campaign. it looks like he did it last night. wall street took some notice today. coal stocks, one of the big winners in today's trading after romney made this comment to president obama. >> by the way, i like coal. i'm going to make sure we can continue to burn clean coal. people in the coal industry feel like it's getting crushed by your policies. i want to get america and north america energy independent so we can create those jobs. >> if you're bullish on coal, you're going to like this. take a look at how we performed today in the sector. arch coal up almost 8%. alpha natural up almost 7%. utility stocks also higher. wells fargo saying this is a sector that could do well under a romney administration. we have con ed up about 1%. on the flip side, hospital stocks didn't do so well. a romney win doesn't bode as well for
a lot of noise ahead of the election and asking for big concessions from the winning candidate. jack gerard is the ceo and president of the american petroleum institute. he joins me now from washington. good to see you, jack. thanks for joining us. >> good to see you. nice to be on. >> you know, when it comes to energy, i have to say we don't have an energy policy, unfortunately. what is the most pressing problem that needs to be fixed right now with america's energy situation in your view? >> well, i think there's three things any administration can do, whoever wins the election in the next few weeks. the first one is to approve the keystone exile pipeline. 20,000 new jobs brings more crude oil to the united states to be produced and used by americans. the second one is the administration could open up additional federal lands to bring more energy to the marketplace in job creating opportunities. the third one and perhaps equally important is to pull back on all the additional regulations that have been put throughout by the obama administration that are having a chilling effect on
, you know, the election could change so many things. it could make the fourth quarter great. it could make the fourth quarter less than great. one thing we know for sure, there's going to be a lot of volatility right about that time. when i think about high frequency trade and flash crash and how it affects the market on calm days, i shutter to think what kind of activity we're going to have if we get sweeps by either the left or the right on november 7th in the marketplace. >> that's a good point. jason, we're looking at the third quarter now ending. you come into work on the fourth quarter. what are you going to do? what's an your agenda? >> sure. we actually agree with a lot of what your other guests have said here. there's a lot of risk surrounding the fiscal cliff. our best case is it will be pushed on and not dealt with immediately, therefore the risk will be moved or pushed off to another day. in the meantime, there's a supportive economic backdrop. it's getting a little better. you need to take risk but not too much risk. what that means is don't buy just equities. that means
uncertainties. the u.s. elections, the fiscal cliff. you've got some back tracking in europe. and then you've got the leadership transition in china. so i think you're going to have that positive influence, maybe met with a little bit of resistance around some of the unserpt you'll see because of these i vents. we think the markets are higher 15 months from now. >> okay, so even if we do see this volatility you think 15 months from now, are you going to be in a better position? what about that, peter, we've been talking today that the expectations call for a contraction in third quarter earnings. going to see a negative performance from the third quarter, these are the expectations, anyway, to bounce back in the fourth quarter. the market -- really haven't changed very much. >> yes, maria. i think the market is ahead of itself. as the prior speaker said, there's a lot of uncertainty out there. markets have been very strong this year. so some giveback in the fourth quarter is not unexpected by me. i kind of welcome it, because we're stock pickers and that will give us a chance to find some
things are not moving in the right direction. >> they want to slow the economy before the election. if you don't believe that, then i have a bridge i want to sell you in brooklyn. that is what the republican obstructionists in congress have been about. you can create excluses for thee guys if you want, but the fact of the matter is every single jobs bill the republicans in congress have voted against. >> carly, what do you say to that? >> wow. you know, first of all, i thought the democrats couldn't get much lower when harry reid took to the floor of the u.s. senate and accused governor romney of not paying taxes for ten years. last week, nancy pelosi implied that there was no security at the embassy in libya was because the republicans had employed cuts in that area. they understand the economy is not helpful to them. i would remind the governor that the republican congress has spent many, many job creating bills to the democratically controlled senate and harry reid has refused to let them get to voted on. >> governor romney, the consensus is he came out ahead in the debates. do
